One of the most influential organisations near Pool is expanding. The Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority is to take over management of the whole of the 268-mile Pennine Way, from Edale in Derbyshire to Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders, in a bid to assure the future of the national trail.
The authority has secured a £350,000 annual grant from Natural England, current managers of the 15 national trails in England and Wales, to maintain and improve both the walking route and the 205-mile Pennine Bridleway, which runs from Derbyshire to Cumbria.
